Ahh, how the temple clear’s one’s mind. Drew and I made a quick jaunt up to the temple yesterday, courtesy of one of our favorite babysitters. I will be so sad when she goes to college.
So, I went to the temple, really distraut about the whole weight-loss thing. The answer I recieved was to shut my yapper. I should workout for fitness, being able to care for my family and to be happy. That’s IT.
I read through the word of wisdom (basically, this is the LDS version of a health code, it’s what suggests that we not drink coffee or wine, etc.) again today. I was really impressed that meals need to center on fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and the meat/dairy will come along with it.
So, those are my thoughts. My yapper is official shut.
Of course, this leaves me in a quadry. Do I still measure and keep myself accountable? Or, do I just do it for myself. I think I’ll keep-up the accountability so far — until I start to get disappointed again, and then I’m leaving that one alone too.
